Epic Games has today confirmed that their new reboot of the Unreal Tournament game will be free to play and will be developed with the help of players and the Unreal Engine 4 Community.
The new Unreal Tournament game is currently under development using the Unreal Engine 4 games engine and will be available to play on Linux, Mac and PC platforms.
Epic Games senior programmer and project lead Steve Polge explains : ”For years, we’ve wanted to reboot Unreal Tournament, but we knew we had to do it in concert with developers and the mod community, and in an environment that sets them up with the proper tools to make it happen,”-“Given the recent launch of UE4, we think this is the right time to move forward.”
“Our first development goal is to get a basic version of Unreal Tournament deathmatch up and running to provide a basis for iteration and further development,”-“If you’re a member of the UE4 community, you can participate or just follow our progress on the live GitHub fork. You can also get started extending or modding the code as it becomes functional.”
Recently Epic Games launched their new Unreal Engine 4 $19 monthly subscription plan that allows anyone to use the UE4 and start creating games. As well as early this week making their Unreal Engine 4 roadmap is available for all to video, detailing what the company has planned for their development team resources and for the games engine in the coming years.
